If you teach earth science or environmental science, you need to check out this web seminar. Deke Arndt gave a very informative, resource packed web seminar. He did a super job explaining the state of current climate science and how scientists are measuring the changes we are currently observing and how they have been measured in the past. I especially appreciated Arndt's explanation concerning how changing climate will affect humans and their activities. He provided some great analogies about how an unstable climate versus a stable climate affects weather. But, most importantly, Arndt showed us where we can look for the most up-to-date information.
